PRESS RELEASE 16.1.2008

KONE Corporation

KONE Wins a High-Rise Project in New York

KONE has received a major order from Hines to supply all elevators
for the 610 Lexington Avenue project. The 66-story building, located
in midtown Manhattan, will consist of a Shangri-La luxury hotel and
condominiums. The building's structure will rise as high as 215
meters (705 feet) and include altogether nine elevators.

The new building will be located near many of New York City's most
notable architectural landmarks - the Seagrams Building at 375 Park
Avenue, Lever House, the Citigroup Center and the GE Building. The
installation of KONE equipment will start December 2008 and is
scheduled to be completed in the Spring of 2010. The order has been
booked in the 2007 order book.

"We are proud to be awarded this high-rise project in New York City,
home to several of the world's most well-known skyscrapers. Hines has
proved to be a great partner with KONE and we look forward to working
together to build this showcase project, leveraging the best of
KONE's local and global talent," says Vance Tang, KONE EVP and Area
Director for Americas.

The 610 Lexington Avenue project follows KONE's other successful
high-rise projects in the United States such as the Hyatt Center and
the Trump Tower in Chicago, Illinois.

Hines is a privately owned real estate firm involved in real estate
investment, development and property management worldwide. The design
architect for the building is Norman Foster and Partners.

indeed, it is very thin for its height. and you won't see the tower in the skyline because it will be build in a very dense area of Midtown , but still a great adition i think

This one is lovely. Nice filler, where it's almost impossible to fill in more

This skyscraper is going to be world-class. Maybe the greatest box ever since its a Foster tower. You know you can't be let down with Foster. I can't wait to see all 700-plus-feet go up soon. It's going up close to the proposed MoMA Spire, which NIMBYs oppose because it would hurt this "low-rise" neighborhood.

Anyone know the size of the tower section's plot? Ex. the Freedom Tower is roughly 210'x210'.
So this looks like maybe 100'x50', but I'd like to know.

LOBBY:

Are these NIMBYs so rich and powerful? That's the only explanation to stop a wonderful project like the MoMa's expansion.

BTW, this is one of the best boxes 'scrapers so far!

Wow. There seems to be a new trend in New York City where superslender towers are getting built one after another. This one has to be one of my new favourites! Any better renders?
